  •  It's a twofer for Republicans (5+ / 0-)

    By pushing the Benghazi "scandal," they:

    1. Put the Obama Administration on the offensive

    2.  They keep the issue "fresh" so it can be used to attack Ms. Clinton should she decide to dip a toe once again into presidential waters.

    They won't give this up. It's too valuable a political tool for them.  They will do another Whitewater: spend millions investigating nothing of importance just to keep the scent of scandal alive.  Bereft of politically appealing and workable ideas, it's really all they have.  

    •  This ^^^. At this point, its as much about Hillary (2+ / 0-)

      as Obama, if not more so.

      And, of course, the lamestream media will oblige.

      Has anyone on a Sunday Talk Show ever brought up the 9/11 attacks on both the WTCs and the Pentagon, the defense HQ of the world's lone superpower, OR the dozen or so embassy attacks--with more casualties--under Bush?

      I mean, how is this story allowed to persist?

      Oh, yeah, Climate Change Denial.

      The MSM has vast expertise on zombie memes now.

      The singularity we are witnessing is the passing of the last wave of people who had the luxury to behave as if the past 30 years did not happen.
